Dolphin

I love dolphins and whales. This is a underwater picture of a dolphin. According to Wikipedia, “Dolphin is a common name of aquatic mammals within the infraorder Cetacea. The term dolphin usually refers to the extant families Delphinidae, Platanistidae, Iniidae, and Pontoporiidae, and the extinct Lipotidae. There are 40 extant species named as dolphins.”

According to Wikipedia, “The elk or wapiti (Cervus canadensis) is one of the largest species within the deer family, Cervidae, and one of the largest terrestrial mammals in North America and Northeast Asia.”

This is a yellow snake cocking its head off to the side. I believe it is a python but I am not entirely sure. It was taken at the Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove, British Columbia. I like the angle of his head on the rocks.

This tiger is reposing – enjoying his time in his loft at the zoo. I believe he is an Amur tiger from the Russian Far East. He looks deep in thought. The picture is nicely framed by some trees.
